FINALLY, Knitting Pictures!

Well, here are the pictures that I have been promising for a few posts now.

Here are the Happy Socks that are knit using Madelinetosh Sock Yarn.

There were a few hats knit for Christmas. The pattern is Wool Noggins and I knit them using Bernat Softee Chunky yarn in a variety of colours. I really like that pattern, it is simple and quick. I added a few more stitches to it so that adults can wear it.

I also knit a few pairs of Irish Wristwarmers using the same yarn as the hats. (I am having trouble with Blogger and my pictures tonight. I will add them to this post tomorrow)
These are DH's socks. They are a 4 x 3 rib pattern with an afterthought heel, done in Sheldridge Farm Ultra Soft Sock yarn. In the colourways Alspice and Chili Powder. I received the yarn from SSYC Heels and Toes Sock Club. I really like this yarn. It knits up into a firm fabric. This is my FIRST afterthought heel. I will definately try it again. It fits pretty well.

There were also a few Alligator Scarves as well. (again...trouble with blogger)

Christmas was nice...too much food and good company. We went to my brother's house for dinner. All the family were there. It was nice to see everyone. We had deep fried turkey, potatoes, stuffing, carrots, green beans and all the fixings that go with it all. It was all wonderful...we all were stuffed. Everyone seemed to like their knitted gifts...
I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year as well!
Happy Knitting!

I'm glad to see that the afterthought heel worked. Sometimes it just takes a few words for the idea to click.
